Vegan Sauce: Honey Teriyaki


This is an easy homemade sauce that I used last night in my Pineapple Fried Rice Recipe. I'm not too good with putting together my own sauces yet, so I borrowed this from Food.com. I did make a few changes because I cook larger portions to use for lunch the next day. This is great for any Asian inspired meal!

Ingredients:

-1/2 cup soy sauce (I added a little more to the dish later on too)

-1 1/4 cup of water

-1 tsp of ground ginger

-1 tsp of garlic powder

-5 tbsp of dark brown sugar

-2 tbsp of honey

-2 tbsp of cornstarch

-1/4 cup of cold water

Directions:

1. Add the soy sauce, 1 1/4 cup of water, ginger, garlic powder, sugar and honey to a medium saucepan and set to med heat

2. Once sauce is heated, add the additional water and cornstarch

3. Watch it carefully and continue stirring because it will begin to thicken after about 4 minutes. Keep heating until it's as thick as you would like (I made mine more thin because it was easy to stir and spread throughout the meal, and wasn't as heavy as some Asian sauces can be)

4. Pour over desired dish and you're done!

Enjoy!

  1. Love the recipe, but honey is not Vegan.

  2. You're right it's not vegan because of poltical reasons (the abuse of bees). My husband and I think more about the nutritional side...if it has no dairy nor meat and it's local sourced honey we're happy with it. You could certainly use raw agave instead though. Thanks for your feedback!
